OP West (group region of Dominican Sister congregations) met on January 29 and 30, 2018 at the Mission San Jose Dominicans’ Motherhouse. Surrounded by the beauty and warmth of California and the oranges growing and the flowers blooming, this was a mid-winter oasis for the sisters from the Northwest!
Our agenda for this meeting came out of our meeting in Grand Rapids prior to the Dominican Sisters Conference meeting. We focused our discussion on Mary Pellegrino’s presentation at the 2017 LCWR Assembly and wondered if Mary’s article would have the same resonance on newer members.
This year the sisters and associates celebrated Foundation Day by dedicating a Heritage Room housed at Marymount-LeMay Family Collection. This 129th anniversary of our founding on October 24, 1888 in Pomeroy, WA held special significance for us as we realized a permanent Heritage Room depicting our history and housing memorable artifacts.
